    winning match after following on

    Well, I didn't win this match as time was running out but I think this is definitely my highest score after being forced to follow on. Has anyone won a game in this situation?

    Never happened with me, my team is always so far behind when we follow on that a draw is our only goal...nice fight back there from your Northamptonshire side though.

    Only twice, with Australia. Had a fabulous win when we avoided the follow-on by 20-odd runs.

    Well, I always get a kick out of winning when the other team declares at some stage. Unfortunately it's easy when they set you 200 in a session because you can just slog with no fear.

    Well TBH, I don't think he's saying it's anything special, just asking what people have achieved after following on and providing something interesting...

    most of the time i have a huge 1st innings lead, but a few times i have done it, a few times i have bowled first and they have made a really slow 400 odd or something, i will go all out and try and make 100 or 150 really quick than bowl them out again and win from there

    If they get 400, and you get 100 or 150, wouldn't you follow on instead of being able to bowl them out again?

    some times if you avoid the follow on and you are trail by hundred and the last day comes and cpu go aggressive and the declares at like a lead of 235 or 224 around there and if you go aggressive you some times win the game try first 4 batsen on aggressive if they score quick you some times win and cpu usually gives about 35 to 40 odd overs thats why if u choose to bowl first its some times good

    I`ve chosen this thread for some pretty memorable victories.

    Australia v England
    3rd Test Match - 11 Dec 2006
    1st Innings - England 402 AO off 124 overs (Thorpe 76, Crawley 71, Bulbeck 63, Mohammed 51) (Gillespie 4/104, Lee 3/111)

    We didn`t perform anywhere near as highly as I`d hoped. So many of them made double figures, there were no cheap wickets. My bowling attack of Gillespie, Lee, Fleming (recalled) and Anderson (left-arm spinner) was rather dry. Not only didn`t we take wickets quickly, we were expensive. We needed an awesome batting display.

    2nd Innings - Australia 207 AO off 103.5 overs (Symonds 50) (Dean 5/56, Giles 4/52)

    Crap. With a twist. We scrambled our way through the innings. The only pluses were Symonds vital knock and the amazing last-wicket stand. Lee and Anderson (who averages six) put on 53! Lee made 21 and Anderson 29! So we JUST avoided the follow-on. We needed to get `em out cheaply.

    3rd Innings - England 281 AO off 97.2 overs (Thorpe 129, Ramprakash 59) (Fleming 5/76)

    After being 4/44, 5/118 and 8/159 things looked pretty good. But then Thorpe and Cork put on 97. That left us chasing well... a draw.

    4th Innings - Australia 480/4 off 124.2 overs (Symonds 155*, Ponting 127, Hussey 78*, Hayden 58) (Bowlers smell)

    Whoot! Symonds shone brightly with an unbeaten 155 and was aptly guided by his team-mates. The England bowlers took some huge punishment, the main culprits being Dean (1/162 off 35) and Giles (0/151 off 41.2) who ironically, where the 1st innings heroes. Bloody brilliant victory, in which pretty much everyone contributed, starting with the Lee/Anderson partnership. Perhaps my best ever win as a coach.

    MOTM - Andrew Symonds
    Australia win by 6 wickets

    Great win Nnanden, after seemingly having no chance chasing 480.

    Squiz - I'm fairly certain it'll be Mike.
